department here as it did in britain. >> right, it's an interesting theory, lawrence, but at this point there's no evidence to support that. there is this allegation from the daily mirror, which it's worth pointing out is a rival paper to murdoch, there were no names in it. it's very hard to assess the credibility of it. this is clearly the most serious allegation facing news corp. were any of this proven to be true, it would have a devastating blow on news corp. and could ultimately lead to the challenge of the broadcast licenses, which would be the worst blow possible to the company, but at this point we have to be cautious and say look, we haven't seen a lot to support that particular allegation. >> and michael, the broadcast licenses are important because really the newspaper business, murdoch says accurately, it's a tiny piece of his action, just a few percent of what that company is up to, which makes you wonder why did he ever want to stay in that business for any reason other than being a political influence and having that kind of moment that we just heard about of walking in the bac
aspects of life in britain? >> it was a huge influence, and i think it's hard to underestimate. to give you an example of the influence that murdoch has had really over the last 20 to 25 years, when tony blair, the former prime minister was considering making a bid for the prime minister's decision, he flew to australia to meet with murdoch. he went to murdoch to ask for murdoch's blessing, and similarly cameron, the current prime minister went to murdoch and asked for a blessing before he launched his bid as prime minister. for a time in great britain, leaders in political parties have played up to murdoch, and there's simply no question his news operations have destroyed some politicians and raised others to high positions of power. >> how does that play out when we think about the power politically of murdoch can be in the united states? >> well, there's no question that the way that his news operations operate in the united states, particularly his fox television network, is at least somewhat grounded in that australian style, it is one that is far more partisan than is the case wit
. >> and the law on this in britain? >> oh, it's a criminal offense. but what's worse is it's now emerged that they had fiscal financial relationships with serving police officers, so, for example, one individual, a member of parliament was discovered to be meeting men at a particular place in south london near where i used to live, but what happened was he would be arrested by a police officer and within five minutes a "news of the world" journalist and photographer was on site. >> what is the jeopardy for murdoch at this stage personally? >> today, his shares lost about $3 billion. >> if he can found to have known about any of this -- because owners of these newspapers, when they read them and see gold in there, they call up and say hey, how did you get that? >> he has said he knew absolutely nothing about any of this. if it's possible that he or his son, james murdoch, knew and were involved -- and remember, james murdoch was asked by a house of commons committee about whether he knew and he said he didn't -- if they did, that places them in very serious jeopardy, in fact, perjury. >>
paying people off to gain an advantage, and it looks like that has happened in britain, and that would be, in fact, a violation of the law, and i think the fact they are lawyering up says they take the letter senator rockefeller and i wrote very seriously. and you asked my interests, i'm a senior member of the commerce committee and jay rockefeller is a wonderful chairman of the committee and we have teamed up here, we have oversight over the communications and mergers, news mergers, so that's why we are very concerned here. >> you mentioned in your letter, les hinton specifically, at "the wall street journal" and it's that kind of cross fert lieization of the personnel that starts to become very worrying, doesn't it? >> it's very worrying, that's why we wrote to this independent oversight committee that was a condition of the sale when "the wall street journal," dow jones company, which owns "the wall street journal," when that sale went through, one of the conditions by the family who owned "the wall street" was they set up this independent committee, and the whole idea was to ensure th

. that news forced britain's top cop to announce his resignation as police commissioner. former news international ceo rebekah brooks made more news today when detectives found a computer, paperwork, and a phone in a trash bin near her home. her husband claims a cleaner must have mistaken it for trash and put it in a bin. rebekah brooks was arrested and questioned for nine hours sunday, but no charges have been filed as of yet. brooks, who resigned from her post friday is also scheduled to testify with murdoch and his son james before parliament. and in a bizarre twist, a whistle blower was found dead in his home today, the former "news of the world" reporter was the first named journalist to allege former editor andy coulson was aware of phone hacking by his staff. andy coulson, of course, being the then-"news of the world" editor who went on to work for prime minister david cameron. joining me now, sarah elson, author of "war at the wall street journal." the -- the wall street journal today wrote a very defensive editorial for the whole bloomberg -- murdoch empire. how did you read
